I have a 2007 185 Tournament. I need the glove box and locker keys. Are those only available thru a GW dealer or can I get them thru the lock manufacturer? I don't have any keys.
Thanks, Pete

There may be a number stamped on the lock face. If so, ask other Grady owners to look at their keys and see if they have one with the same number. Another option is to call the lock manufacturer often Perko or Southco with that number. I am pretty sure you can order dupes

I never lock mine since a thief will do FAR MORE damage getting in there then its worth. If they want it, they will get it anyway.
I have heard the same story form several fellow boaters. They say the same about the cabin lock. Personally I lock the cabin door but physically remove my gimble mounted electronics. If they want the VHF radio, so be it.

I forgot to mention that a locksmith may be more expensive than just installing new locks. If the locker and glove box are currently locked you really need the correct key.

Totally agree with this. No reason to lock anything on your boat. Anyone looking to get in will and they will damage things to do so.

I am curious. Might an insurance company challenge a claim for theft if the owner left the doors open?:)

Those are great questions to ask at renewal time. Also, just speaking theirhetically...if the thing is unlocked and theft occurs, a hammer throw to protect yourself....you know, to scare off the thief if they are there still....that happens to hit the lock...solves a lot of problems.

Especially if you are really really scared and throw it a bunch of times.

Lastly..I have found a claim is a claim.... lock it..not that huge a difference to add the box to the claim....big difference to not be able to add any of it.
